Million Hearts®

Million Hearts launched in 2012 with a goal to prevent by one million heart attacks and strokes by 2017. The National Forum is a proud supporter of the Million Hearts initiative and has been working closely with our members to advance its ambitious goal.

The National Forum is where successful collaborations happen.

Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt walks with his wife and a city employee to improve his heart health during the Move with the Mayor Challenge.

World Heart Day is the world’s largest intervention against cardiovascular disease. However, it is only one day, and it takes more than a day to change behavior. That’s why the National Forum leveraged World Heart Day to create the Move with the Mayor Challenge, a mayor-led campaign that encourages Americans to take control of their cardiovascular health through walking. 

World Heart Health Day

Cardiovascular disease (heart disease and stroke) is the number one cause of death in the U.S. That’s why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) came together to create and lead the Million Hearts® initiative. This initiative, which was launched in 2012, aims to prevent by one million heart attacks and strokes by 2017. Find out how the National Forum is supporting this CDC- and CMS-lead effort.

The effect of high cholesterol touches much more than the health of one heart alone - it affects the lives of your family, friends and community. To combat the effects of high cholesterol, the National Forum created Counter Cholesterol to raise awareness about the risk high cholesterol poses to women and their families. 

Stronger Hearts Helpline Call Center

The Stronger Hearts Helpline is a free, bilingual heart failure support service in San Bernardino County, CA that is available to patients and their caregivers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
